Sightings for July

The star bird was an adult Caspian Tern, moving between Astley Lake and the Main Lake, from 18th to 20th. This was a new bird for the area. An adult White-winged Black Tern was at Astley Lake briefly and then relocated at Skelton Lake on 11th (the sixth record, and seventh bird).

The Brent Goose was present again from 3rd to 9th and 20th. A Mandarin was on Lemonroyd Lake on 19th and a male Scaup was on the Main Lake from 20th to 24th. Best of few waders were a Ruff on 6th, a Spotted Redshank on 7th, a Sanderling and Wood Sandpiper on 19th, a Whimbrel on 21st and a Turnstone on 23rd and 24th. A flock of 95 Black-tailed Godwits on 17th made up the bulk of the 170 birds passing through in the month. One (seen twice) or two Sandwich Terns were briefly over the Main Lake on 6th and there were two Yellow-legged Gulls on 2nd with further singles on 9th, 16th and 19th. Juvenile passerines included a Cuckoo on the ridge and furrow area on 27th with a Redstart at Skelton Lake on 18th and up to three Whinchats on Astley hillside from 27th.
